Hi,

I am looking to purchase the Dell 14Z ultrabook. I have two options for the processer i.e. 3317M / 3317U.

My question is what are the main differences between them and which would be a better fit.

Regards
Zen

What are you going to be doing with the this computer. The 3317M is a "regular" dual core I5 mobile processor. The 2217U is also a dual core I5 but is an ultra low power low TDP similar to an Intel Atom. Personally I would take the 3317M I am not a fan of those ultra low power processors to me they are so focused on power consumption and TDP that they give up to much performance and are just to slow.

The Core i5-3317m does not exist, I assume you are referring to the Core i5-3320m.

The primary difference is low clockspeed in the i5-3317u which means lower power consumption and lower performance. If you need to maximize the battery life, then go for the i5-3317u. If the laptop is going to be plugged in most of the time and battery life is less of a concern then go with the i5-3320m.

Additionally, the Intel HD 4000 has lower clockspeed in the i5-3317u compared to the i5-3220m to save power. This will decrease performance of any Photoshop effect that uses the GPU.

Well the office stuff isn't going to be to demanding on the CPU, I mean you can use any processor to run office, even a crappy Pentium 4. If you use it for photoshop I then I would get the other I5 not the ulra low power one.
